    Story

    With his trademark wit, wisdom, and humor, best-selling author and lecturer Dr. Wayne W. Dyer explains how we can evolve from the lowest level of consciousness (ego) to the highest (unity). Dr. Dyer starts out with a challenge from A Course in Miracles: "You don't have any problems; you only think you do." He goes on to illustrate how the mind can control both physical and emotional well-being, all one has to do is create healthy, positive molecules and move away from negative thoughts.

    What did you love best about There is a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem?

    Dyer has a very approachable, common man sense about him yet the topics covered are pretty deep and thought provoking


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dyer's stories of his interaction with his kids, kids are crazy insightful and without a filter they regularly cut to the chase without all the BS posturing, political correctness, etc.


    What does Dr. Wayne W. Dyer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I definately get more out of audio or video of Dyer than written book, I guess there is just more passion and understanding when you hear it from the source versus reading it.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Perspective = the ability to know and understand that you are not your feelings, in fact you the observer thereof, that knowing gives you the space to act instead of react to situations, emotions, fights, etc....


    Any additional comments?

    I could not find the audio version of the book, so I purchased his lecture on the book. It was good, but still not the book.

    We are all indigenous to the planet Earth - and that is why each of us can benefit from indigenous wisdom. Throughout their history, the Lakota people developed many enduring insights and practices for achieving harmony with all the forces in our life - including the land, the spirits, our community, and ourselves.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes/no ... My opinion is that this is a surface level introduction to the Native American perspective. However, I greatly appreciated that it was read by the author.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Author is very authentic and made connection between the past and present. I enjoyed his stories of his childhood and experiences with his grandparents and lessons learned.


    Was Living the Lakota Way worth the listening time?

    Yes, but I wanted more depth.

    Paulo Coelho's enchanting novel has inspired a devoted following around the world. This story, dazzling in its simplicity and wisdom, is about an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago who travels from his homeland in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of treasure buried in the Pyramids. Along the way he meets a Gypsy woman, a man who calls himself king, and an Alchemist, all of whom point Santiago in the direction of his quest.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Alchemist to be better than the print version?

    I did not read it in print, but I am ordering copies for our family library and plan to read it to our boys for story time.


    What other book might you compare The Alchemist to and why?

    The Prophet, The Go-Giver, Daring Greatly, Walden, Living the Wisdom of the Tao, Art of War, The Greatest Salesman in the World, ... This is one of those books that through a simple story tells all of life's truths, yet the LESSONS can be learned and heard on the surface or you can spend a lifetime trying to fully understand, comprehend and apply.


    What about Jeremy Irons’s performance did you like?

    It was entertaining to hear a famous voice, but I was not a huge fan of how he changed from one character to the next. That said, it was not a distraction either. "A" overall.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES, YES and I did. I had about an hour of yard work to do, but I spent 4 hours mindlessly doing stuff while totally enraptured by this story. I caught myself smiling and laughing, then later crying as particular lessons went straight to my soul.


    Any additional comments?

    READ OR LISTEN to this book. Listen once for the story, listen twice for the lessons and write them down, then listen again and find ways to incorporate into your life ... Now I plan to read to my two young boys simply as a story, but a story with incredible value for their lives! READ THIS BOOK!

    For many years, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer’s fans have wondered when he would write a memoir. Well, Wayne has finally done just that! However, he has written it in a way that only he can - with a remarkable take-home message for his longtime followers and new readers alike - and the result is an exciting new twist on the old format. Rather than a plain old memoir, Wayne has gathered together quantum-moment recollections.

    Would you listen to I Can See Clearly Now again? Why?

    I really appreciate authors who read their own work for audible and Wayne is one of the best. He puts so much into the writing, then into the reading too. His presentation speaks right to my soul. Thanks Wayne for sharing so much with us. YES, I will listen again after I left this listening digest for at least a few weeks ... it's really good stuff.


    What other book might you compare I Can See Clearly Now to and why?

    I am an avid listener of all kinds of books, but ones that I might compare in this genere are The Prophet, The Alchemist, Daring Greatly, Go-Giver, and Gifts of Imperfection and of course any of Wayne's other 40+ bestsellers!


    Have you listened to any of Wayne W. Dyer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    YES, I have listened to 100+ hours and watched just about every TV special. I Can See Clearly Now is one of his best works.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES and I nearly did. I bought it the day my subscription credits were available and went through the whole thing in just a couple days, actually getting up earlier each day to dedicate more time (and then arriving late at the office, stalling in my car to hear more before facing the day).


    Any additional comments?

    This is 59 chapters of Wayne's lives, quantum moments where something changed, something coincided to shape his future. He uses these as life lessons in hindsight, challenging us to do the same because so many of his "moments" were crazy obstacles at the time but now are seen as lessons learned!

    Gay and Katie Hendricks have spent over 25 years developing "kitchen and bedroom tested" methods for building relationships that work, thrive, and grow. Their emphasis is on cultivating lasting love by accepting, and even encouraging, differences - without trying to change one another. Their methods encourage openness, identification of real feelings, and shared commitment to the relationship.

    Maybe, but hesistant to do so


    What was most disappointing about Gay Hendricks and Katie Hendricks ’s story?

    Presentation felt patronizing, too basic, too introductory to really make any difference.

    When you said, “I do,” you entered marriage with high hopes. You dreamed that your marriage would be supremely happy. You never intended it to be miserable. Millions of couples are struggling in desperate marriages. But the story doesn’t have to end there. Dr. Gary Chapman writes, “I believe that in every troubled marriage, one or both partners can take positive steps that have the potential for changing the emotional climate in their marriage.” As you listen, you will learn how to recognize and reject the myths that hold you captive.

    Gary is a good writer AND good narrator! I think this should be mandatory for anyone getting married and everyone who is married. We have a good marriage, but when Gary went through the most common issues in marriage, I identified with 90% thereof ... now I have a "to work on list"!

    What other book might you compare Allies in Healing to and why?

    None that I have found yet.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Very motivating to hear the stories of those that made it through!


    Any additional comments?

    As spouses we need to understand that we all bring baggage, but for survivors that baggage is something entirely different.

    Too many Bible verse quotes for me, but still a good book.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Gary Chapman? Why or why not?

    Yes


    Did Now You're Speaking My Language inspire you to do anything?

    Better communication, seeing both sides, a few good simple steps to get there.


    Any additional comments?

    I thought Desperate Marriages and Five Love Languages were MUCH better!
